Recipe: Breadcrumbs!!!

I know that this recipe entry seems like a cop-out. And those that know me know that I’m not Martha Stewart and ohhh, by the way, you can BUY breadcrumbs in a store. But honestly – it is really, really easy and the food just tastes so much better. Plus, you get a chance to work through all of those crusts that you cut off of your sandwiches for your kids (if you’re like me). I wind up saving a bunch of crusts, and also working through the end-pieces of a loaf of bread, or even using up baguette-type bread that it turning on the stale-side.

This is a great combination with Flat Meat, particularly if it is chicken. So, so easy. And I can really taste a difference from the boxed-stuff.


  • several slices of bread
  • dried spices — garlic powder, oregano, basil, …. …..


  • Break up a slice of bread at a time and put in a mixer or food processor.
  • Continue to add broken up pieces of bread
  • Add and mix dry spices at the end

Prep time: 5 minutes

I then flatten chicken and put in milk and roll around in the fresh bread-crumbs. I fry up in olive oil for about 5-10 minutes on each side (depending on how thin you flatten the meat). I put in a dish and let it sit, covered, until the rest of the dinner is ready.

So good. So easy.

I have not tried it, but I betcha you could probably keep some of the (unused) breadcrumbs in the refrigerator for several days.
